    Default My Vectra broke down!!!!!

    Well it went into limp mode so off to the dealers it went on Monday.

    Cause of fault was the swirl flap beneath the manifold, apparently the 1.9 16v's get coked up and the motor can't open and close the flap properly causing the management to throw a wobbly!!!

    But it was removed, cleaned up and set back up again.

    But the biggest bonus was that there is an ECU software upgrade (Map) now for the 1.9 CDTi 150 which was also installed as part of the job.

    What a difference, the car flies now, much more responsive and it feels like it has a much more linear torque curve. Performance and mpg is much better.

    So a happy bunny now!!!

    Mines an 04 reg, I was not aware that any later versions of the map were available, but when they did the job, TIS pointed out to do the ECU upgrade.

    Took mine this morning, sorted the Car/Spanner symbol but said that the latest ECU version was in my car? Strange seeing as it has not been near the main dealers since September........

    Either it had the latest put in last September of they may be talking rubbish.

    But the latest version may have been out for some to to be fair.

    Sure worth asking, if they have no real reason to do it they may charge you a little but may be worth it.
